DIY bibimbap. Korean dishes to pick from. Or a selection of Japanese food. What’s not to love? Tiny hole in the wall you’d miss if you aren’t looking for it. It’s in a tiny plaza, but you can smell the food right when you get...out of the car, so just follow your nose. 😋😋😋 The staff was very patient and waited while I decided. (So much to pick from) You order at the counter and pay after you eat. Pics attached of what we ended up with. We were not disappointed. Quality was good and the pork dish was freshly prepared. The place was clean and there was kpop playing. 👏🏻😍 Will be back to try other dishes out. Their fried chicken looked pretty good, as did their Galbi.More

For a very unassuming place, you will not be disappointed! They have such wonderful food here. I've suggested this place to a lot of friends. Can't wait to go back.

Had a hankering for some Asian food mid Sunday afternoon and had noticed this unassuming place countless times while stuck at the traffic light on East Mountain Street. Little place but big welcome to everyone from the staff. If they don’t know you they ask...if it’s your first visit and then walk you through the menu. I must return for bibimbap but on this day the spicy pork caught my eye. It comes with rice and miso soup. The pork was excellent. The miso was good. Tip: go for lunch specials Monday- Friday and get a deal for about $10. Will definitely go back!More

Saw them on Yelp. Drove 45 minutes and was not disappointed. We had the lunch special; bibimbap, miso, and a drink. I had the white rice with tofu and all the veggies. I had the fried egg on top and had it served in the...hot stone bowl. I had the sot lemon sauce. It was delicious; big portion so I brought some home for later. Very friendly service and very clean bright space with off street parking. Will definitely be back. "See you tomorrow".More

Excellent, fresh food at a reasonable price. The staff is friendly and helpful. You can ask for a taste of protein and/or sauce so that you get something you personally enjoy. My favorite is their specialty, Bibmbap! Taste and texture in a hot bowl! We...also shared an order of pork and chicken dumplings which we thoroughly enjoyed! A new favorite restaurant!More

Casual, priced right, fresh and tasty. We like more spice and flavor, but overall a decent take out meal.

This counter service little nook serves delicious Korean fusion food with a smile. The hot stone bowls make the rice at the bottom crispy and crunchy and delicious. We love the hot paste sauce. You get a bowl of miso soup with rice every bowl....Great place for vegetarians too!More

Been there several times the past month and always got a great meal. Small and rustic inside but don’t let that fool you. Everything is always great and the service is excellent. No alcohol. See you tomorrow

Choose and Mix is celebrating its first anniversary in April, but continues to make new fans. On our most recent visit, both other tables were occupied with first-timers discovering what makes this little hidden jewel so great: Fresh food, interesting flavors and great service. Since...we don't get there as much as we would like (it is across the city), we always end up ordering the same thing: Pork dumplings (fried) and a bibimbap (brown rice, beef, assorted veggies and a mixture of soy lemon and teriyaki sauces, topped with a fried egg, regular bowl). The dumplings are crispy on the outside, moist and flavorful on the inside and the dipping sauce is incredible. We find splitting an appetizer and one bowl is plenty for the two of us, though having one each would allow us leftovers. We have done the stone bowl (which produces crispy rice at the bottom, but my husband prefers softer rice). When we first visited, there was only one table. Now, there are a few, and each was occupied on our last visit. This place is no longer a secret. Check it out.More

This storefront restaurant will have their first anniversary in May 2018, but we just found this place in March. The three of us had the spicy pork, bibimbap, and kale and spinach dumplings. The food was excellent. There are a limited number of tables, but...that won't stop us from going back soon.More

Choose & Mix is a small restaurant in a nondescript strip of stores, next to a convenience store and laundromat. With only two tables, we had to take two stools at a high counter (not our favorite way to eat), but the food was worth...it. We started with fried pork dumplings, six light and crispy dumplings with a soy-based dipping sauce. They were an excellent start. Seeing the size of the bibimbap bowls, we decided to split one. We chose the brown rice; added onions, broccoli, zucchini, carrots and mushrooms; then chose beef; and, after sampling several sauces, chose the teriyaki, but asked for the soy lemon sauce at the table. We decided to try the hot stone bowl (which we were told would crisp up the rice) and top with fried egg. And it was just $9.41, plus $1 for the hot bowl and 50 cents for the egg. Being lunch, the meal came with miso soup (which may have been good, but neither of us like miso soup) and a drink. Wow. What great flavor. The yolk of the egg helped enrich the flavor. And the soy lemon added some tang to the sweet teriyaki. The vegetables were cooked quick enough to be left intact. The only thing that we would change next time is to not bother with the stone bowl. While it kept the rice warm, we didn't leave the food in one place long enough to get crispy and liked it just as well. Next time we might try the bulgogi ($12.95), or maybe choose the sweet potato noodles as the base. Or we might just try the same again because it was excellent.More

The bibimbap was the best I've had since visiting Korea a few years ago. The service was really great too, my only regret was not trying this place sooner. I will definitely be a regular!
